STAIND Begin Recording New Album

STAIND guitarist Mike Mushok has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Hey there, I know it's been a long time since I've written anything but lately I've been really busy working on this new record. We go into the studio today to start tracking the new stuff. I'm really excited about where we are, I think the new stuff is sounding really good and can't wait for it to be done so everyone can hear it. We've been practicing now for about almost 2 months and have about a dozen songs or so right now but some other ideas that we've also been working on. David Bottrill [GODSMACK, MUDVAYNE] is producing this time . He's been up the last couple of weeks working with us and that's been a really good experience. Everyone's pretty excited to get started. If all goes well we should have this out this fall so hopefully soon you'll have a new record to check out.

In the meantime, [singer] Aaron [Lewis]'s had some solo acoustic gigs that have been going really well. He just played in reno and we got to check him out at the Mohegan Sun Casino here in Connecticut a few weeks back. He's got one more show in Vegas right before the 4th of July so check it out if you can.

"STAIND has some dates that we'll be doing towards the end of July. We go out for just over a week and end that little run with the Rolling Rock Town Fair. That should be cool, we played in it 2 years ago and it was awesome. They always seem to put together great line ups. This year we'll be playing with SEVENDUST, DISTURBED, HOOBASTANK, FINCH, THREE DAYS GRACE and a few other bands that I can't remember now. Speaking of THREE DAYS GRACE we did that tour of Canada with them and NICKELBACK and they were really cool. and obviously we toured all last fall with SEVENDUST and those guys always rock - we're excited. Should be a great show. Not sure yet who's doing the other dates in July with us but when we know you'll know."
